100 Thoughts While Reading or 100TWR is created by yours truly. I honestly don’t know if someone have done this before but I got this idea from the awesome Epic Reads.
What is 100 Thoughts While Reading?
100 Thoughts While Reading is sort of an alternative to reviews here on Afire Pages. Like what its name says, I will be sharing my 100 thoughts (or more or less) while reading a certain book. If I didn’t write a review for the book that I’ve read (like always, because of the lazy unmotivated me), expect that from now on, there will be a 100 Thoughts While Reading post for it.
Why did I create 100 Thought While Reading?
If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you have probably seen me do a thread for the book that I am currently reading and share my thoughts and favorite lines from them. I do this to express my feelings/thoughts towards a book and to let people know how is that book going for me.
Here are some of the threads I did:
I am that kind of a reader and a blogger who find it hard to write reviews sometimes for multiple reasons. Even if I want to write a review, sometimes I just can’t do it. So, as you can notice, most of my reviews here on Afire Pages recently are for ARCs or finish copy that was sent to me by the publisher or author in exchange of an honest review (which I am so thankful for). When I know that I am required to write a review, I will do so. But when I’m not, like if I just randomly bought and picked up the book and read it, even if I want to write a review, I most of the time miserably fail to do it. And this 100 Thoughts While Reading is an answer for me.Because I won’t have to worry about my writing, my grammar, if I am even making sense or anything. I will just fully express the thoughts I had while reading.
Although I won’t be able to tell you my final thoughts and verdict about it, you may still get an idea based on the thoughts that I had.
Lastly, I think this will be a great way to start a discussion about a book and get to know how different each of our experiences were while reading the same book. Who knows, we might also get to know more each other?
Do you want to join me?
Please feel free to do this on your blog if you want to! I would love to read the 100 (+ or -) thoughts you had while reading that book. Just please link this post yours so I can keep track. I will include you in the list (by blog and by books) of 100 Thoughts While Reading that will be posted here on Afire Pages so others can find you and the books you’ve read too.
